Black Obsidian Healing Properties by Intentions:
Fear, Insecurity, Worry / Removing Negativity – Like many black stones, Black Obsidian can release some long-term issues you may have since childhood. Those issues might involve intensely negative emotions like grief, anxiety, fear, and anger. Those issues might even involve guilt, shame, and resentment of yourself and close family members. Once you have a clear understanding of where your negative emotions and thoughts stem from, you have the choice to replace it with a different set of beliefs about your reality. When you have removed negativity, your mind opens up to possibilities, opportunities, and creativity. Removing negative beliefs is the 1st step in working with the Law of Attraction. The abundance mentality flows out only after you have achieved a deep inner sense of personal worth and security.
Protection & Spiritual Grounding - Black Obsidian offers spiritual protection, especially from negative vibrations and generally people, events, places, and things that can drain your energy and cause you anxiety. Black Obsidian is popularly worn as a talisman to ward off energy vampires. This crystal can also block the negativity from attaching onto you through the “Debbie Downers” in your workplace or home that you cannot avoid being in contact with.
Grief & Bereavement – Dealing with a loss is always difficult. However, Black Obsidian helps you introspectively look within yourself and direct you to answers on how to handle a stressful situation more calmly. Black Obsidian gives you mental clarity and a clear path to go forward. You are able to let go. Although life will not be the same, there is always an abundance of possibilities to find happiness beyond your comfort zone.
Anger & Forgiveness – Black Obsidian is a great stone for self-reflection and self-awareness. Meditate with Black Obsidian to truly understand the root cause of your anger. Was it due to an unrelated past trauma that triggered your rage? Understanding why we feel angry and frustrated many times will lead us to understand it is ourselves we are mad at rather than the person we argued with. This deeper understanding allows us to make a choice to change our flawed perception of reality and opens the door to forgiveness of oneself and others.
